presentation. i think it's an important part to hear about. thank you. >> commissioner murase. >> i'm sorry. there is no response to that? that was for now and if you have a response and yes, i would like you to incorporate that understanding in your ongoing updates about this work. sorry. if you have something now i would most certainly like to hear about it. >> sorry about that. >> there is no question in order for us to be successful where we're seeing acceleration is because we're student centered but none of that is possible. we know that the teachers are at heart of this reform. some of the things you heard about today it's because teams of teachers are putting their heads together and are reflecting on student work. they're planning their lessons together. they're really being deliberate how they share some of their practices with one another. that's what makes a lot of this possible. our school communities are built on that community of professionals and yes leaderships critical to make sure the conditions are there for our teachers, but it's our teachers who make it happen
